Update on my Knee pain

Went for my check up at the doctor's today to get the results from my kneed x-rays.  No surgury at this point as my knees are just full of good old fashioned arthritis.  This does not make me happy at all, but I am pleased I don't have to go under the knife anytime soon for them.  Tomorrow I have to go for blood work, he is worried it may be rheumatoid arthritis and that scares the shit out of me to be honest!
He prescribed me T3's for the pain 3 a day and a rub that he says is amazing, just need money to get my prescriptions thank Goddess my work insurance covers the prescriptions and I only have to pay the dispencing fees.
I also asked him to send me to physiotherapy, maybe with their help I won't need all the medications.  So now I start to work on loosing weight to help with the pain and find a good place to go for physio.
Blessings and light to you all!

Good to hear from you Sherry. Not good about the arthritis. Sure hope he hooks you up with physiotherapy quickly. I am with you about taking the meds. If I don't have to, I don't want to take them. Wishing you a pain free day!

Hope the physio works well for you. I can highly recommend having acupuncture treatments - works a treat on mine! There's an electric pulse version, for those who are needle-phobic. :0)
